Self-guided inn-to-inn walking holidays on Britain's National Trails and Long Distance Paths
Discover parts of the amazing and historic British Isles that are often bypassed by traditional holidays. Experience some of the country's most scenic landscapes close up, at your own pace and away from the crowds. It's just you, your daypack and the horizon!
You'll be based in an eclectic mix of B&Bs, guest houses or small friendly hotels along the route; we'll book your accommodation, move your bags, provide the maps and guidebooks you'll need and leave you just to enjoy the freedom of the trail. All you'll need on your back is a daypack for a jacket, your camera, perhaps a lunch and anything you really need when out on the trail.
From the options on offer for each path, you can choose the length of your trip, the distance or time you'd like to walk each day and the date you'd like to start your adventure. You can take your time and enjoy the views, villages and distractions along the way, include a free day to relax, or just eat up the miles - it's your holiday.
During the walk you'll find that your baggage has been brought to the next overnight stop, letting you take the load off your back and allowing your to just enjoy the walk. We provide an excellent guidebook littered with historic notes and tales to embellish your walking experience.
Load Off Your Back is part of the Ramblers Worldwide Holidays family, and with decades of experience in organising walking holidays throughout the world behind us, you can be sure your arrangements are in good hands. We've worked hard to provide holidays with variety, flexibility and relability - you just need to choose one to suit you.

Britain's more beautiful on foot.
Scotland and it's Highlands contain some of the last remaining pristine wild areas in the United Kingdom, and some of the best walking in the world in a region as untouched and unchanged as it is possible to find in our islands.
Wales has by far the strongest cultural identity of any of the countries of the United Kingdom. This proud cultural heritage adds greatly to magnificent walking in this small and relatively unpopulated country.
